Cheese Straws

Yield:
24 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 lb cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 8 Tbs. butter, plus a little for greasing the pan
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grate cheese. Sift flour, salt, cayenne & mustard into large bowl. Cut in butter and mix until fully combined (this can be done in a food processor). Stir in cheese and then knead with hands until batter comes together. If necessary, add small amount of ice water.

  • Roll into ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 20 minutes (this can be done up to 2 days in advance of cooking). When dough is chilled, roll to about 1/4" inch thick and cut into strips about 1/2" wide. Place on slightly greased baking sheet and bake until golden, about 8-10 minutes.
